‘Chaplin’ to hit road

Musical lays plans for U.S. tour

Producers of “Chaplin,” the bio-tuner about the life and career of Charlie Chaplin, are betting on the silent film legend’s regional appeal, with booking agency AWA Partners laying the foundation for a touring production to hit the road in fall 2014.

Tramp tuner has been a middling seller on Broadway that was impacted further by superstorm Sandy and its aftermath. The musical, which opened earlier this fall, doesn’t seem to have had time to develop much pull with out-of-town visitors; the title didn’t see a holiday spike in sales last week, playing to houses at 57% of capacity and pulling in around $375,000.

An international tour, which would tap into the global recognition of Chaplin and his films, is also in the works.

Rich Entertainment Group leads the team of producers on the Rialto. Warren Carlyle directs and choreographs the show by composer-lyricist-scribe Christopher Curtis and co-book writer Thomas Meehan (“Annie”).
